I just had a thought that may or may not be helpful. When my wife or I had surgery we were told to wash with some special scrub and not use any skin lotions. For some reason I remembered this and wonder if the problems some have with these patches coming undone is from the use of skin care lotions.
I mention in another post that I scrub the area where a sensor is going with an alcohol soaked paper towel. My thinking is to remove any skin oils.
So far in 4 months of using the Dexcom G6 I have not lost a sensor due to adhesive failure. I’ve had a bit of lifting a couple of time near the 10th day.
Anyway, I could be all wrong about skin lotions, but I couldn’t get it out of my head so I had to share. There’s always superglue. No, don’t do that!
